This cartridge’s 230 grain bullet and 860 fps muzzle velocity are pretty much spot on as far as John M. Browning’s original specs for the 45 ACP are concerned. That means it’ll treat an older 1911 right, but it will perform just as reliably in some newfangled .45 cal firearm, too. The bullet is an FMJ, the most basic kind of projectile you can fire in a semi-auto. Fiocchi’s gilding metal jacket is hard enough to feed reliably and ward off excessive fouling.
Fiocchi’s ammunition contains no steel – there is nothing magnetic about this ammo, so take it to any commercial ranges you please. Their ammo also sports brass cases, but handloaders take note! Fiocchi lowered their production costs a little by fitting these rounds with small pistol primers.
